Witching Season

Tour De Fleece 2021 has started off as a rousing success. We had to skip it last year because of the dreaded COVID pandemic but this year, it’s back!! It began 4 days before my #casualcraftalong on Instagram ended (June 26th 2021) and I decided to take that same energy from the make along into this event. The primary making/crafting goal for me this year is to finish, finish, finish and so far so good.

Today’s post features the finish of some rolags I made using a project bag from Sherrill Roy as my inspiration. It’s also the kickoff to a July 2021 to June 2022 timeline of YOP crafty blogging and I couldn’t think of a better way to start! To say that the yarn turned out better than I saw in my mind is an understatement. Watch this space for more inspo to rolag to yarn projects!

Project Details:

  • Rolag Maker: Me
  • Fiber: Merino, Angelina
  • Starting Fiber: 1.3 ozs
  • Ending Skein: 115 yds, 2 ply, fingering weight (230 yds of singles)
  • Tools: DIY blending board, Bosworth and Kerry spindles for initial spin, Maggie for plying (Lendrum Spinning wheel)

I’m very happy with the outcome and looking forward to playing with rolags and painting with fiber some more! Next up is to find a Fall spooky colorwork project to really make this yarn shine.
